Piano Recital by Alexandra Dariescu

Romanian-born Alexandra Dariescu is one of the most charismatic of young pianists, combining great musicianship with a warm personality and stage presence. We’re delighted she’s returning to the Piano Week, with a programme of contrasting emotions and moods; from the sombre-tinged Mendelssohn, Pletnev’s sparkling arrangement of Nutcracker Suite, through the tenderness and love of two Chopin favourites, to the restraint of Fauré’s Preludes

Szymanowski  Nine Preludes Op 1
Chopin  Scherzo No 2
Tchaikovsky arr Mikhail Pletnev Nutcracker Suite
Fauré  Three Preludes from Op 103

Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders)
